Milan Far Off from Agreeing to New Maignan Contract

The Milan hierarchy will have their work cut out for them to come to terms on a new contract with Mike Maignan. The goalkeeper earns €2.8M, which is a lot less than his top colleagues across Europe, Corriere della Sera informs.

The star hasn’t displayed signs of malcontent, but his entourage wants a robust sum to re-up. He’s currently tied to the Rossoneri until 2026. The subject isn’t necessarily urgent, but the conversations are ongoing.

The Maignan camp has reportedly asked Milan for €8M wages, which would be more than any other player in their squad. Rafael Leao, their most recent high-profile extension, makes €5M plus €2M easily achievable bonuses.

Chelsea inquired about the shot-stopper last summer. The Rossoneri no longer needed to sell after cashing in on Sandro Tonali and slapped a €100M price tag on him. The Blues, Bayern Munich, and Manchester United have been keeping tabs on the ace and the potentially complicated talks between his agents and the front office.

Our Take on Milan and Maignan

He’s been criminally underpaid so far, so his demands are fair. He’s entering his prime and is poised for his first, and maybe last, very large contract. Whether he’ll get it from the Rossoneri is a nice question, but they have about a year to haggle and reach an agreement before it becomes a real problem. Still, after what occurred with Tonali, the threat of a major sale will loom constantly.
